The Whiteclaw clan was considered to be one of the oldest and proudest of the orcish clans. They lived in Frostfire Ridge. They joined with the Frostwolf clan in the Battle of Bladespire.
Before the First War, it protested the changes to the orcish way of life by Gul'dan and the Horde. As a result of their sympathies to the Frostwolf clan, they were easy targets for the bolder and more violent clans, and were consequently attacked. The Whiteclaws were destroyed, and any surviving members were scattered. The clan was believed to be no more, becoming little more than clanless savages.
